About Just

Help your organization optimize policies that improve social equity and enhance employee engagement.

The JUST program is a voluntary disclosure tool for organizations.

JUST is not a certification program, it is a transparency platform for organizations to disclose their operations, including how they treat their employees and where they make financial and community investments.

JUST is a nutrition label for socially just and equitable organizations.

This approach requires reporting on a range of organization–and employee-related indicators. Each of the indicator metrics asks for simple yet specific and measurable accountabilities in order for the organization to be recognized at a One, Two, or Three Star Level, which is then summarized elegantly on a label.

Organizations can use the label on their website or marketing to demonstrate their commitments to these issues. The Institute also transparently posts the detailed information in our publicly viewable database.

JUST marks the beginning of a new era of corporate transparency. The Institute invites organizations everywhere to evaluate themselves through this social justice and equity lens and become a JUST organization.

With support from participating organizations, JUST will help create a better, more socially just and equitable world.

The JUST USER Manual offers a comprehensive overview of the program and describes the registration process.

There is an initial $100 USD fee to register your organization on the JUST website. Once your organization has submitted the registration fee, you will be able to begin uploading policies and data for each of the indicators.

Once your organization has completed the data submission process and wish to receive the JUST Label, the JUST Program Fee is due. The Program Fee is based on number of full time employees. The JUST Label is valid for two years after publication. Organizations can update and renew their JUST Label fee at any time up to the expiration date for a renewal fee which is set at 50% of the JUST Program Fee. The updated JUST Label will also be valid for two years from date of publication.
